Can't justify getting rid of

Vehicle: 1998 Mitsubishi Mirage DE 4dr Sedan

Have had my 98 for about 8 yrs. Averaged 34 mpg, and have seen 45 mpg on straight highway driving. Put on a cold air intake and now it sounds more throaty. Very reliable. Never been in the shop. Lots of room to work on engine. (it's smaller than some motorcycles engines). I always talk about the mileage. Why get a hybrid, is what I Wonder.

Vehicle: 1998 Mitsubishi Mirage LS 4dr Sedan

Our Mirage LS was exceptionally reliable. Like our previous Colt, not much more than routine maintenance, with tires and brakes lasting 60K. After 120K the car did loose some zip, maybe form diminished compression. And while fuel economy also declined, we could still obtain 35 mpg plus on the long trips.




Great car! at an auction??

Vehicle: 1998 Mitsubishi Mirage DE 4dr Sedan

I purchased this great little car at an auction a couple of months ago for about $1000. Couldn't believe the next day I cleaned it up and drove it! Ran great! Everything on it working and in tip top shape. Only had $129,000 miles on it. The gas mileage is great and the body looks really good. I ordered a spoiler and some euro lights for it and I'm going to put rims and tint the windows!! Very satisfied with this car.




Very reliable

by on
Vehicle: 1998 Mitsubishi Mirage DE 4dr Sedan

The gas mileage is great. This makes it cheap to operate and it has never left me standing on the side of the road (knock on wood). I have done little more than upkeep type repairs. Changed the timing belt, engine seals, and routine oil changes.




My baby!

This is my first car, I've had it for almost 5 years, no headaches yet!
